“One of the best and largest aquariums in europe.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

Presents a great diversity of species, supplemented with very clear and didactic information. The main aquarium is breathtaking, worth "losing" some time to contemplate the scenery.

“Spring Break Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

What do you do with kids on Spring Break when it is raining??? Take them to the Oceanario de Lisboa. The ticket price is a little steep but it is a great aquarium and worth the visit. The holding tanks for the fish are awesome. Around the tank are little benches in these cubby hole things that you can sit and take a break and watch the fish go round and round. It would be very romantic to bring a date here too and sit and watch the fish. We've been to quite a few aquariums and this one is pretty neat. Also having it located in the park surrounded by lots of restaurant options and room for kids to burn out energy is fantastic!

“Amazing”

Had 2 good hours here. Admission is only 16€ per adult - worth the money! Must see the 3 otters, sooo cute!

“only thing worth visiting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

the aquarium is well worth a visit. however there is nothing else worth seeing out here in the Expo 98 Park. A very disappointing trip saved by the fantastic otters and super-cute penguins
